During World War II rocket power matured into a devastating weapon of war. But the Germans had only scratched the surface of what was possible! Fantastic rocket-powered aircraft were forged which would shatter unbreakable speed records. Next men would set their sights on the stars. The dreams of space travel that inspired rocketeers in the 30’s were not forgotten. Aircraft were envisioned and took flight to take men to the edge of space and beyond. Aircraft that may one day open the doorway into space for all.
